Again, this one stays on the iPod. The narrator is perfect and I love the story. It's obscene, raunchy, hardcore and I loved every minute of it..all three listens.

Wow. I can't begin to tell you what a surprise Carrie's Story was for me. I've been pretty much "vanilla" my entire life and then like all the other women out there, Fifty Shades comes along and bam! I realize there's more to sex than just, well... vanilla. So begins my ride down the Erotica trail and what a great ride it's been. But, even Fifty is TAME in comparison to Carrie....however, I was totally pulled in from the first line and listened to this book in one day.
Carrie is unbelievably intelligent, having just finished graduate school and preparing to begin her masters program. She's a dedicated, hard-working, loyal woman with a solid head on her shoulders and doesn't take crap from anyone, yet she's warm. I liked her right from the start.
Johnathan is rich (aren't they all?), gorgeous (again? hello?) but a difference from Christian is that Johnathan is roughly fifteen years older than Carrie, almost a father-figure in a way I thought. He meets her at a party and almost immediately asks her to be "his slave" and we automatically think Carrie will say NO, but shockingly, she doesn't. She meets him at his home and the whole thing "begins" -- I was trying so hard to keep up with all that was going on visually and yet I still had to go back and rewind because I didn't want to miss a thing. It. Was. That. Good.
Their relationship is completely and utterly SBDM, but we get these glimpses of loving acts between them when Johnathan allows Carrie to "be herself" but it is RARE. It's tough too, made me sad, and I wanted so much more for them, these two, in their way, controlling characters. I wanted the HEA but it wasn't to be found here. The story moves along with Carrie making a poor decision and Johnathan ends up selling her on the auction block -- but there's so much that happens in this seemingly short, six-hour book to put it in one review. It just wasn't what I was expecting and I loved every minute of it.
This was my first "real" BDSM book and well, I have to say, it won't be my last.

Would you listen to Carrie's Story again? Why?
Yes and I have! The writing style is beautiful and the sexual content provocative, sometimes even down right shocking!
What did you like best about this story?
The sexual content and the descriptive writing
Which character – as performed by Shana Savage – was your favourite?
Carrie for obvious reasons, but her owner Jonathan is also very intriguing
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The opening lines where enough to let me know this was a book for me!
Always difficult to make stories like this engaging, but the narrator made rather a good job of this one. A fun engaging and believable version of a dom sub relationship from the point of view of the submissive. Who is for once an intelligent young lady with a three dimensional personality. Supporting characters are also reasonable.
